I have little experience with this kind of problem.
None of the Browsers I used under mac (IE 4 - 5 and sever NS 4.x) has sent
the data different than Windows Browsers. But avoid the meta-tag charset. I
had serious problems when the HTML-file where the form data came from had
that tag set (but I didn't spend a lot of time investigating it).

Anyway: why do you want to translate a  to an a?
I made good experiences with storing original chars and using htmlentities()
(or otherway round if you don't have to edit that stuff)
